"Better the devil you know than the devil you don't." —AnonymousPope Benedict, formerly known as Cardinal Ratzinger, Ratberger, Ratbag or some such, conjured up Satan by accident when he addressed the assembled throng of faithful after a Sunday mass at St. Peter's Square in Rome last Sunday.
Crowds of thousands in the square ran for safety when the demonic presence appeared, spewing fire, brimstone and sulfur.
The Pope was quoted as saying, "" I don't know where it all went wrong. What I meant to say in Italian was, "In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen"...but it came out, "Hergekommen, Teufel!" Sheis!""
The pope's childhood friends from the Hitler "Jungen" who were in attendance had no comment.
